Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to challenge his players to earn their UCL return for 2021-22. He recently revealed that we are what we earn, and now that Liverpool has crashed out, the team will respect the situation.
According to him, the top four battle is very hot this season, and the Reds are still not in the driving seat, so the fierce battle vs Leeds United must be taken seriously.
Klopp added that he is naturally confident that UCL football can still happen, but LFC players will have to give their all to make it possible.
His words, “We are not silly. We want what we earn. If we don’t earn it 100% then we respect the situation.”
“We concentrate on what we do and what we have to. It is tough, we are still not in hotseat and we play at Leeds United on Monday. That is a tough one, they are the most physical team in the Premier League pretty much so you better run a lot yourself.”
“It has nothing to do confidence. I am naturally confident but that doesn’t mean we will end up there. We know the points we have, we know the table, we know the situation. We don’t have to talk too much about it.”
“If we want [Champions League football] then we should play really good football which we did tonight but if we want to go through we should finish the situations off on top of it.”
“We are not in a bad moment. We played really well and got a late winner against Aston Villa, we played really good against Arsenal and not good against Real Madrid in first leg, but we were not bad tonight.”
“We really have to keep going and keep fighting, we want the Champions League next year, but we have to pick up more points than a lot of other teams.”
